Tim Bradley's Promoter Wants Amir Khan or Pacquiao

By Robert Morales

Thompson Boxing co-promotes junior welterweight champion Timothy Bradley, who will fight fellow champion Devon Alexander on Jan. 29 in Pontiac, Mich.

Alex Camponovo, head matchmaker at Thompson, said he would like to see Bradley fight either Amir Khan - another junior welterweight champion - or WBO welterweight champ Manny Pacquiao. Both possibilities depend on Bradley getting past Alexander.

"We wanted to do that fight a long time ago, after he (Bradley) beat Lamont Peterson (in December 2009)," Camponovo said of Bradley-Khan. "We actually had contracts but Khan ended up leaving Frank Warren for Golden Boy and that fight never happened. That would be a great fight."

As would one with Pacquiao, Camponovo said.

"Maybe Amir, or Pacquiao down the line if he (Pacquiao) decides to fight somebody who is real. The fight with (Shane) Mosley is about three, four years too late. The fight with (Antonio) Margarito, everybody thought he was fighting a huge guy. But he was fighting a huge guy who could fight only one way. Even (Oscar) De La Hoya. ... Very good matchmaking."

"I think it's time for him to step up and fight somebody who is real and has real potential to give him a good fight."

Bradley needs to worry about getting past Alexander which i know it will be hard for him to do. Better prepare for that STL ass kicking.

and Tim deserves a fight with Pac, he's the most accomplished out of the three and less dangerous...and Tim is a little bit slow at a higher weight. To beat Pac..clinch is the answer then a quick combination, do this…

Sign me up, I'd rather see desert storm beat khan first, then push it all to the center against pac. I don't think he'd last too long against pacman, I'm not sure he's ready yet. But I'd take him against…

I'd like to see pac/bradley at 147 lbs for pac's belt. then bradley can come back down to 140 lbs and fight khan for the undisputed title at 140 lbs.
